saving the world
I'm horrible at writing/talking about myself. I'm majoring in international relations with a certificate in middle eastern studies. i'm hoping i can do my master's in middle eastern studies in the american university in beirut or the american university in cairo. it gives me a chance to travel and go to where i've always been drawn, and i get to continue my education.
i'm obsessed with learning and reading and i'm a proud nerd. i can't live in the united states for much longer ... i think it's just that i've been here too long.
annndd ..... i think i'm done. i'm really bad at this. just message me :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Chefchaouen - it's a small city in Morocco in the middle of the Rif mountains. The entire medina is painted in shades of blue and the people are amazingly friendly. A friend and I ended up sleeping at a restaurant the night we were there and the cook drove us the next day to the closest mountain, and guided us for 2 hours to find the most beautiful waterfall I've ever seen.
